Johnny Gaudreau was credited with a hit on Saturday when he bumped into Chris Phillips.
The significance of this is that it's Gaudreau's first hit at the NHL level and it came in his 19th career game. It's obvious that hits are not a big part of Gaudreau's game but the offensively talented winger has contributed fantasy-wise with three goals and 12 points in 18 games this season to go with a plus-seven rating. Don't go looking for minutes from him either as he has yet to sit in the sin bin. Nov 16 - 4:15 AM

Johnny Gaudreau has been told by Flames GM Brad Treliving that he should find a permanent home in Calgary.

In other words, Gaudreau isn't likely to be sent to the minors in the foreseeable future. "He's just feeling more comfortable, he's finding his way, he's getting more chances — he belongs here," Treliving said of Gaudreau. "That's not to say there won't be bumps along the road but he's passed the point where: (a) it's too much for him, and, (b) this is where he can learn." Gaudreau has three goals and 12 points in 17 games in 2014-15.

Johnny Gaudreau netted the eventual winner and helped on another in Calgary's 4-3 victory over Nashville on Friday night.

Johnny Hockey had his second two point effort of his brief career. His secondary assist on Jiri Hudler's early third period goal to tie the game at two was impressive due to his poise to stand in front of the giant Nashville defensemen, it was his goal that was wow-worthy. After receiving the head-man pass from Deryk Engelland at the red line, he fought through both a back-checker and a defenseman to gain the zone, cut wide left, and ripped a laser past the indominable Pekka Rinne far side.

Calgary Flames coach Bob Hartley thought Johnny Gaudreau was their best forward on Tuesday.

Rookie Johnny Gaudreau is a plus-four in eight games thus far this season.

The speedy rookie has a goal and two assists as well. Gaudreau spent a game in the press box a week ago and has been on fire ever since, giving the Flames no reason to have him just watch games. He is worth having on your fantasy roster in all but the shallowest of leagues.

Johnny Gaudreau got a lot of credit for setting up Dennis Wideman's power-play goal on Tuesday.

"That was all Johnny," Wideman said. "I just skated down the side there, and Johnny basically drew everybody in the rink to him, deked them out and then made a great pass to me. I don't know how he knew that I was there, but he made some fantastic moves and just put it on my tape. I just got it on net." Gaudreau is starting to heat up after a slow start to the 2014-15 campaign. He's one of the league's most exciting rookies this season.

Johnny Gaudreau had his first goal and assist of the 2014-15 campaign after spending a game in the press box.

Gaudreau got off to a slow start this season, but he has a lot of offensive upside. Flames coach Bob Hartley has been watching him closely to get a better feel for how best to help Gaudreau. "Before I go to him and say, 'OK, you need to do this, this, this, this,' I need to know what Johnny can do for our hockey club. Brad (Treliving, the team's GM) in training camp had the best line, 'With the puck, he's an NHL player. Without the puck, we don't know yet.' This guy has played with the puck on his stick his entire career. That’s a huge adjustment," Hartley said. "We're showing him video of positional play, not puck-watching, not getting beat, not beating yourself by bad positioning, stuff like this, how to compete and find a way to use his size to his advantage. Those are all things we're trying to work with, but we need to see more (time) from Johnny to have a better picture."

Johnny Gaudreau understood why he was a healthy scratch on Friday.

It's always tough for a rookie to be a healthy scratch but Johnny Gaudreau took it the right way as it was to be a learning experience and not a punishment for struggling in the early going. "It was good for me," Gaudreau said. "I talked to Coach Hartley about it and it’s something a young player needs to learn from. And I talked to a few of the guys here and they said everyone goes through it. I’m just a young guy learning the ropes around here. No one really likes sitting, but it’s something that’s eventually going to benefit me." Gaudreau was pointless through his first five games and had only one shot on goal. Look for him to be back in the Flames lineup quickly. By the way, he looked great in practice on Saturday but coach Bob Hartley would not say if he will be in the lineup Sunday.

Johnny Gaudreau will be a healthy scratch for the Calgary Flames on Friday.

The Flames are playing in Columbus on Friday. Gaudreau is pointless in five games this season.
Oct 17 - 7:12 PM

Johnny Gaudreau appears as though he'll be a healthy scratch Friday against Columbus.

Josh Jooris is slated to make his NHL debut after he was summoned from the minors. He is projected to start with Jiri Hudler and Sean Monahan as his linemates. Gaudreau has one shot and no points in five games this season.

Johnny Gaudreau has gotten off to a quiet start in 2014-15.

Gaudreau has no points and just one shot on goal in three games. It's too early write him off, but those numbers are obviously not in keeping with his offensive talent. Flames coach Bob Hartley feels it's important to manage expectations when it comes to Gaudreau given his lack of experience. "Johnny, I think, he has a very good future in pro hockey, and right now he's just learning the game with the puck and without the puck," Hartley said. "I think it's just normal what he's going through."

Johnny Gaudreau logged 16:04 minutes in Calgary's season opener on Wednesday.

Gaudreau is one of the most exciting rookies going into the 2014-15 campaign. He didn't get a point in the Flames' 4-2 loss to Vancouver, but he was on the ice for teammate Paul Byron's goal. All-in-all, it wasn't a bad game for him, but he certainly sees room to grow. "In college, I feel like in the third period, if we were down a goal, I had a few more chances to bury and tie the game up," Gaudreau said. "But out here, I had limited chances. I only had two or three chances to tie the game up and I didn't even get a shot, so that’s something I need to work on and get better at."

Oct 9 - 7:59 AM

Johnny Gaudreau is expected to open the season on a line with Joe Colborne and Paul Byron.

How do we know that the line is likely to be used? Because Flames coach Bob Hartley has, albeit jokingly, named it. "The Tower and the two Timbits," Hartley said. "Let's get Tim Hortons and get a sponsorship. We're all over Joe Colborne to say he doesn't fit with those two guys, but they'll play big." Colborne is 6-foot-5 while Gaudreau and Byron are both listed as 5-foot-9.
